Also this week saw Ernest as a guest on Domino Radio's Daily Liquid Lunch Show with Jack Shankly where he premiered a brand new track from the forthcoming album 'Within And Without' - Listen back HERE for an exclusive airing of the track 'Echoes'.


Within And Without, produced by Ben Allen (Animal Collective, Deerhunter, Gnarls Barkley), is due for release on July 11th. At times almost orchestral in its composition, Within And Without is a thoughtful, mature next step from a truly focused, unique artist; retaining the hands-in-the-air, sun-kissed ecstasy of much of his previous work but broadening its pallet of mood and atmosphere also. Whereas much of the talk around the 2009 EP Life Of Leisure was of its lingering sense of nostalgia, Within And Without exists very much in the present – it feels vibrant and living; equally yearning, romantic, sad and triumphant.
